Video games vs. computer/online games

Do your kids play them a lot?  My kids play them all!  Getting them away from the video game like WII or Playstation is easy enough but that computer... UGH!  Since they do so much of their work on the computer and use the internet so much it's a royal pain in the butt some days.  I would love to disable their internet while they are doing their work but that would require a jamming device since they can pull WiFi off the lines around here so a jamming device would probably be illegal... LOL.

 we have all kinds of the gaming systems & we have 2 computer plus a tablet so my kids are hard wired. What is funny is most of the time the game symptoms go untouched for days & even weeks at a time but the computers & tablet get turned on almost everyday.

The video games get hit hard here  but not the  computer, it's more of the parents' toy.

My kids use it all but they know when I say enough is enough, that is it.

"Oppression of spirit is not on
the public school curriculum. Rather, it's a noxious by-product produced
while stewing schooling in a pot w/ unions, administrators,
multi-billion dollar budgets, state education departments, and school
boards, then letting politicians control the heat." Linda Dobson

"When you want to teach
children to think, you begin by treating them seriously when they are
little, giving them responsibilities, talking to them candidly,
providing privacy and solitude for them, and making them readers and
thinkers of significant thoughts from the beginning. That's *if* you
want to teach them to think." ~ Bertrand Russell

 We have a few. The big problem with Cody is the TV, all the all day cartoon chanells. He could watch them all day, even thought there are 2 chanels that play the same shows but different times. Eastern chanels and Western chanels.
